Weekend Getaway: Asheville

Only a four-hour car trip from Charleston, Asheville offers a great escape for a girls' weekend or a romantic couple's retreat. This weekend was girls only.

The Biltmore Estate offers historic tours of America's largest home, wine tastings at their vineyard, and a quaint shopping experience in their Antler Hill Village. We spent most of the time at the wine tasting room after we had enjoyed a delectable lunch at the Bistro.


Devan's Dish: Pastrami Reuben “Croque Monsieur,” Bacon-Fennel Sauerkraut, Gruyère Fondue with Parmesan and Truffle Butter Chips


Erin's Dish: Winter Lettuce Salad, Mulled Cranberries, Candied Pecans

 
My Dish: Traditional Pepperoni Pizza, Pomodoro Sauce, Mozzarella

The Bier Garden in Downtown Asheville offers a variety of beers from around the world, wine, and healthy comfort food...the perfect place to take haven from the cold rain. (Photo courtesy of the Bier Garden.)

To end our girls' weekend we enjoyed a hearty breakfast at the Early Girl Eatery, Asheville's version of Hominy Grill. They boast a "farm-to-table Southern comfort food experience", and they live up to their promise. (Photo courtesy of About.com).
